    Nonsecure Collection of Passwords will trigger warnings in Chrome 56 for http://waynet.org/

    To: owner of http://waynet.org/

    Beginning in January 2017, Chrome (version 56 and later) will mark pages that collect passwords or credit card details as "Not Secure" unless the pages are served over HTTPS.

    The following URLs include input fields for passwords or credit card details that will trigger the new Chrome warning. Review these examples to see where these warnings will appear, and so you can take action to help protect users' data. The list is not exhaustive.


    The new warning is the first stage of a long-term plan to mark all pages served over the non-encrypted HTTP protocol as "Not Secure".

    Here's how to fix this problem:

    Use HTTPS pages to collect sensitive information
    To prevent the "Not Secure" notification from appearing when Chrome users visit your site, move collection of password and credit card input fields to pages served using the HTTPS protocol.

    Note that our unique visits are down significantly, likely due to our site being "dinged" by Google for not being "mobile-friendly".

    Historical Background

    The figures that were formerly in this section were created from the statistics generated by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.

    One of the major changes that occurred when AMHosting moved our site to a new server was that we no longer have access to AWStats, the statistics program we used for years.

    The downside is that we can no longer compare apples to apples when looking at our historical data. The good news is that we have had Google Analytics set up on the site for some time, so we can still maintain a long-term overview by looking at this service.
